Kahn & Selesnick. Nicholas Kahn, born in New York City, and Richard Selesnick, born in London, UK, have collaboratively created extensive mythologies since the 1980’s. Working with photography and installation, their stories are a combination of past, present, and future, mixed with fantasy and anthropology. Using materials, elaborate costumes, and narratives that are pushed to the absurd, Kahn & Selesnick’s anthropologies are a mix of utopian and dystopian lore. Kahn & Selesnick both received BFA’s from Washington University, where they started working together and are currently based out of New York state. They have shown at the Brooklyn Museum of Art; the Philadelphia Museum of Art; The Houston Museum of Art; the Los Angeles County Museum of Art; and the Smithsonian Institution.
